THE TOP CARS TO LOOK OUT FOR IN 2019!
2018 has come to an end, and it's time to look forward at all of the incredible cars that will be revealed in 2019! We have already seen a big 2019 with the next-generation Porsche 911. But there are many we have our eye on, that have been rumored to come out in 2019. Here are the ones we know about so far, and we cannot wait to see which new ones start to pop up as the year goes on.
Lamborghini Huracan Evo
For $261,274 plus taxes, Lamborghini will give you a Huracán with four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, a new 8.4 inch touchscreen built into the central tunnel, improved aero with a suspended rear spoiler, and the Performante's 631-horsepower naturally-aspirated V10. That's the 2020 Lamborghini Huracán EVO in a nutshell.
C8 Mid-Engine Corvette
The C8 generation may be the most highly anticipated sports car of 2019 following an endless parade of test mules and spy shots - this car literally has decades of hype surrounding it. Chevy was set to reveal the mid-engine Corvette at the Detroit Auto Show in January but the car has already been delayed by six months. Rumors of what will power the C8 Corvette range from a traditional 6.2-liter V8 up to a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8. No matter what, we expect the mid-engine Corvette to drastically disrupt the sports car market.
Ferrari 488 Replacement
Ferrari's product cycle is fairly easy to predict - when a product is near the end of its life cycle, Ferrari releases a special, lightweight version along with a lightweight spider variant. With the 488, this was the Pista, meaning we could be seeing an all-new successor in 2019. Rumors have tossed around the idea of a V6 hybrid drivetrain and we expect Ferrari's next mid-engine sports car to look dramatically different than the 488. The 488's successor is expected to arrive at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show in March although it probably wont be out until 2020.
Among the electric cars set for a 2019 release, the Porsche Taycan is by far the most anticipated. Porsche has already had to increase production of the Taycan after taking in so many preorders. Expect the Taycan to bundle Tesla-rivaling range, luxury, and performance, all at a similar price. If this car is as good as we predict, Tesla could be in trouble.
After a more than 20-year hiatus, the Toyota Supra will finally return possibly in late 2019. The Supra will be revealed at the 2019 Detriot Auto Show, though we have already seen a leaked image of what it will look like. Powering the fifth generation Supra will be a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six producing at least 335 horsepower. The Surpa also shares its platform with the recently revealed BMW Z4, which is only available as a roadster.
Ford Shelby GT500
Ford has plenty of big reveals cued up for 2019, though it hasn't done a great job of keeping them under wraps. The upcoming Shelby GT500 will be revealed at the Detroit Auto Show in January but we've already seen leaked images of the car from a private event. The GT500 is expected to use a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 producing around 720 hp. Like the GT350, we expect the GT500 to be manual-only.
